Many opportunistic White Nationalists have been doing cartwheels ever since a gay, Black man shot and killed two former co-workers and seriously injured a third in Roanoke, Virginia. Some White Nationalists, like Brad Griffin, the publisher of the hate blog Occidental Dissen, have called for the removal of the Rainbow Flag, a universal symbol of the homosexual struggle for Civil Rights simply because Vester Lee Flanagan, the gunman, reportedly had a Rainbow Flag in his apartment. They are trying desperately, and failing miserably, to ignite a movement to remove the flag in much the same way that the Confederate Flag came under fire after the murder of nine innocent African American churchgoers by an alleged White Nationalist in Charleston, South Carolina. The difference is that the Confederate Flag has always been a symbol of White Supremacy, an ideology that Charleston shooter Dylann Roof was apparently motivated by. Here is what one of the designers of the original Confederate flag (which was incorporated into the design of the Rebel flag we are all familiar with today) had to say about the flag:
“As a people we are fighting to maintain the heavenly ordained supremacy of the white man over the inferior or colored race; a white flag would thus be emblematical of our cause. Such a flag would be a suitable emblem of our young confederacy, and sustained by the brave hearts and strong arms of the south, it would soon take rank among the proudest ensigns of the nations, and be hailed by the civilized world as the White man's flag.”

Some White Nationalists, like Michael Cushman, a former Neo-Nazi hate group member have gone as far as attacking the Southern Poverty Law Center, claiming that the hate group watchdog has a "hateful Anti-White ideology". Cushman also labeled the Roanoke shooter as an "Anti-Racist", apparently an attempt to smear true Anti-Racists. Unfortunately for Cushman, Flanagan was not an Anti-Racist, and there is no evidence he is connected to Anti-Racists. Thus far, there have been no links between Flanagan and any groups or movements, unlike Charleston shooter Dylann Roof who claimed he was inspired by content he found on the hate group the Council of Conservative Citizens webpage, a page run (until recently) by White Nationalist Kyle Rogers. Additionally, the Southern Poverty Law Center does not espouse hateful and violent rhetoric, unlike the Council of Conservative Citizens and the League of the South.

Now, one hate group that both bloggers are, or were members of, the League of the South is trying to use this "opportunity" to give the appearance that the latest shooting is part of an ongoing "race war", reports Vocativ.
